Desert Horses

Welcome to my horse blog, Desert Horses. We live in the desert southwest, near Palm Springs, CA, but board our horses up in our local mountains where it is cooler in the summer. I have 4 horses, all rescues. Here is the ranch up the mountains where the horses stay, October, 2015. That's Scout in the arena.

How cold has it been here?

I know some parts of the country are under snow (New Mexico), and other parts have had horrible tornadoes.  Here in our little corner of the world, we just had the lowest overnight temperature EVER.  It was 21 degrees down in Thermal.  Now, Thermal is about 35 miles south of us, at the lower end of the Coachella Valley.  There are date orchards and citrus orchards down there.  There is a LOT of agriculture.  So, 21 degrees can be devastating for crops.  It was 32 degrees on our front porch that morning.

I went over to our local nursery that morning to buy some cauliflower plants (organic, of course!) and 1 more (organic) cabbage.  These were some of the pics I took that morning at 8:30.  They had just watered all of their plants.

Please stay warm, if you can!  Today was a lot warmer.  It was 34 degrees here this morning.
